Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment


On April 11, 2018 the Illinois Senate passed the Equal Rights Amendment as Senate Joint Resolution Constitution Amendment 4 (SJRCA4). The fight now goes to the House.

Eight Republican Senators voted for the ERA. Pro-life Illinoisans deserve political leaders who will clearly commit to the protection of innocent unborn children, and who will follow through on that commitment.

While we are disappointed with all 43 Senators who voted for abortion, we are gravely disturbed by those who solicited pro-life support and presented themselves as pro-life but voted for the ERA. Their vote was a vote in opposition to life and will not be ignored. The Illinois Federation for Right to Life PAC, Illinois Citizens for Life PAC, Illinois Family Action PAC, Illinois Family PAC, and Lake County Life PAC will not endorse or support any legislator that casts a vote for such a sweeping pro-abortion piece of legislation as the ERA.

Of all the pro-abortion myths recycled by a compliant media, few are as egregiously off the mark and as damaging as the insistence that the pro-life position is some outlier. If you were silly enough to believe what you read in the Washington Post and the New York Times, you would think pro-life legislation, such as the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, is widely opposed by substantial majorities of Americans.

The truth is the exact opposite!

Which may be one reason that when the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act passed the House of Representatives 237-189, for the major television networks it was like the proverbial tree in the forest that none of them heard fall. As Katie Yoder of Newsbusters informed us

During their Oct. 4 morning news shows, ABC, CBS and NBC didn’t mention the vote once. But they found time for others topics like fall fashion deals (NBC Today), a new drama starring Actress Connie Britton (ABC Good Morning America) and puppy-related infections (CBS This Morning).

There the usual hit pieces in the Post and the Times and the rest of usual suspects. But then, miracles of miracles, there was this story that appeared in the October 4 Washington Post under the headline, “Most GOP lawmakers support banning late-term abortions — and so do a lot of women.”
